Exercising during pregnancy has always been a big mystery to many doctors, essentially no studies have been conducted on this topic so many doctors simply do not have any answers. Fortunately today a medical study was released that sheds some real light on the situation and it turns out that, as many expected, exercising during pregnancy is a very good thing. Surprisingly doctors found a very strong link between the mother’s exercise habits and the newborn’s brain activity, indicating that it is a very good idea to continue exercising.
Surprisingly the study found that exercising for about 20 minutes, three separate times a week was enough to show a significant benefit to the child. Mothers that exercised regularly gave birth to generally healthier babies that had significantly higher brain activity early in life. This is fantastic news because it is a very simple request that can make a huge difference in the life of a newborn. Doctors everywhere are recommending that pregnant women begin exercising or continue exercising because it can have such a profound impact on their child’s health and that is obviously fantastic news. Follow up studies are being planned currently to determine whether certain exercises are more effective than others.
